    Epstein with 21 carries for 111 yards in his first start as a true freshman! Dudek is better after a slow start.

    Can't believe Boise has Kansas loser and reject Montell Cozart splitting reps with Rypien..

    It sounds as if there are a lot of White quarterbacks with excellent pro prospects!

    Washington State LB Peyton Pelleur with a pick 6 on an ill advised Cozart shovel pass.

    Boise State falling apart with 5 minutes left in the 4th.

    Nice find. Only a freshman and he has wheels ---4.40 legit speed. Slot receiver size. One to keep an eye on.

    I think week 2 was a slight improvement over week 1 but nothing to go crazy over. ND had more of a white factor than GA and WR Chris Finke hauled in a few passes along with being the Punt Returner. Ga has zero whites on D. For some reason ND relied on their slow footed QB running the ball. That coach is in trouble.
    Clemson-Auburn--grind out game. Hastings played very little so there was no chance to showcase his quickness. He is pretty small but Auburn couldn't get things going. Renfrow had several key/clutch 3rd down receptions. Clemson QB reminded me a little of Cam Newton . Big guy who can run and threw some decent passes last night but needs more polish. Clemson has a tough one next week at dreaded Louisville.
    And there is no point in jumping the gun so I will jump the gun. Ha. I know it is too early but S Tanner Muse might be the most impressive white '' athlete'' DB since Jason Sehorn. I am being interrupted so more commentary in a bit.

    I don't like OK (no blacks on D for miles) but Baker Mayfield was the reason they won last night. At the high end of analysis he could be Drew Brees with a little more foot quickness. DE Sam Hubbard played well and Bosa too but they were the only two guys on that vaunted Ohio State D worth anything last night. Mayfield and OK confused Ohio State.
    USC manhandled Stanford and play Texas next week which is not a gimme. Hybrid Porter Gustin did not have big stats
    but this guy is a real good one.
    WR's Trey Quinn and speedster Andy Isabella had decent games yesterday. There was some commentary about Austin Proehl here. His dad was in attendance and you get the feeling they are trying the Christian Mac approach with good ole dad easing his son into the NFL. Sure hope so. We need some big years out of some WR's including Cody Thompson. It all boils down to draft time and nothing burns me more when only one or zero white WR's get drafted.
    Alabama LB Holcombe played really well so it looks like he will start. And I am waiting for Wyoming QB Josh Allen to explode so he can shut up the many critics he has right now. Even though they lost nice to see Kansas WR Ryan Schadler get a few balls thrown his way(6-60).
    And as reported both RB's Laird and Epstein have looked good in the early going.

    Not a bad week - seems like their has been a big uptick in white WRs this year from out of nowhere which is a nice development. I was expecting this year to not be as good for our receivers but through 2 weeks I have been proven wrong. Just goes to show how little the scouting services really know.

    It sounds like Falk was benched twice, once for poor play and than for injury. I watched some of the game last night and outside of one long deep ball he was throwing all underneath stuff - not good for his draft stock. I am glad Hilinksi was able to come in and lead Wazzu to a victory.

    Kyle Allen returned to the field and led Houston to a victory over Arizona - hopefully Allen continues to improve. Arizona St. also thankfully lost - Graham and Rodriguez are two more hot seat candidates.

    Normally I could care less about an SEC team beating an out of conference opponent but I have a disdain for Brian Kelly and his neglect of white QBs so I was glad to see him lose to a white freshman QB. The media was hyping up Kelly's latest quotaback so it was nice to see them lose.

    It was good to see Mayfield get his revenge on Ohio St. and he totally outclassed Jt Barret at the QB position. Barrett has started games for the past 4 seasons. All of the excuses are due to the lack of a deep passing game but he is not a next level caliber QBs.

    So is FAU! Despicable coaching staff down there. Kendall Briles is their OC and Lanes bro is DC (given up almost 900yards rushing first two games! )

    Yeah, the most prominent Catholic schools, BC and ND, each weighed down now by quotabacks, go figure. I wonder if Pope Francis and his lenient African immigration policy had anything to do with that.

    I wouldn't be surprised if "Urban" goes with White QB Tate Martell or maybe some other quotaback. I can't imagine the OSU DWFs being happy with either the Clemson or OU results and are clamoring for a change at the QB position. Herbie kept repeating that OSU lacked playmakers to "stretch the field" for Barrett, which is a joke, as Barrett could barely hit the broadside of a barn at 50-yards out. Herbie just showing his undying commitment to what must be his secret quotaback boyfriend this season, boy he's had so many of them over the years.

    Also, just watched a post-game interview with Josey Jewel and he's fine...just got nicked up. Will be back next game.

    yes, I agree great find. In watching his highlight vids cant help but say he only runs as fast as he needs to on most plays but this kid is freakin fast when he puts the pedal down. He has short legs and could do with higher knee lift once in the open.....He has run a 4.35 40 at a camp in 2016

    watched Cincy/michigan game on Big Ten 60 mins. Cincy has a good QB but except for a few catches by his negro wr's they tended to drop most passes to them. Every hurried throw was caused by their left side sumo's, their negro RB's slow as molasses.

    Nice video of Cal RB Patrick Laird running wild yesterday. A pleasant surprise so far this year.
